Title: Control of cardiac alternans in spatially extended system
Prolonged untreated cardiac alternans may lead to life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias or sudden cardiac death. Thus, finding an effective control method to suppress cardiac alternans is important. In this project, we use mathematical models to generate cardiac alternans in 1D and 2D and suppress the alternans using the T-T control method. The research results may let us understand the mechanism of cardiac alternans and will contribute the development of smart defibrillators to improve the lives of patients with cardiac arrhythmias.
